Fred is my friend,

my Imaginary friend

he likes to swim with Sueshine,

my other imaginary friend.

He swims in the day,

he swims in the night,

he swims while he eats spaghetti

he swims in a shark infested sea.

Fred is my friend,

like you or me.

Fred is green

with purple spots

he also has

the chicken pocks!

He has blue eyes,

a blue nose

and orange toes!

He’s always sick

with measles or bumps,

he’s always depressed

whether or not

he smells like salami

and gets attention,

he’s never clean,

JUST like my brother!
